Welcome back Schreiner Students, Faculty and Staff!

We hope you all had an outstanding holiday season and enjoyed your time away from campus.

2007 is off and running in the land of the Mountaineers, but we first want to recognize our academic stars from the Fall 2006 semester. A total of 64 student-athletes earned academic honors for their classroom performances last semester. The list of achievers is available at the following site:

Congratulations to our Mountaineer achievers!

Now, on to the games... Both Schreiner Basketball teams host games in Edington Center TONIGHT and Saturday afternoon. 
A quick look back at Mountaineer action...
Here's a look at the recent past for both teams and the next week's schedule follows:

WOMEN'S BASKETBALL - went 2-1 this past week. Beat TLU (78-60) on Monday, beat LeTourneau (74-52) on Saturday and lost to Ozarks, 68-81 last Thursday. The Mountaineers have won two straight over less successful ASC teams and have improved their record to 4-5 in the ASC. SU started slowly in the first half vs. TLU and had only a four-point lead at halftime but took control in the second half over the winless Lady Bulldogs. Against LeToureau, the Mountaineers used two big runs - one in each half - to pull away and cruise to victory. Ozarks did the same thing - big runs in each half - to doom SU in its game. Over the three games, Courtney Davis has led SU in scoring averaging 13.7 pts/game while Monica Enriquez has averaged 13.3 pts, 6 rebounds and 5 assists. Kerrie Carter has led the SU rebounders with 8 per night while Liberty Liesmann has 7 rebounds per game.

MEN'S BASKETBALL - went 1-2 this past week. Lost to TLU (67-70), lost to LeTourneau (75-89) and beat Ozarks (83-78). Schreiner lost a tough contest to TLU despite a furious late game rally and fell to 3-6 in the ASC with the loss. The two teams were tied at halftime and SU took a 10-point lead in the second half but TLU's 77% shooting in the second half was too much to overcome. Against LeTourneau, it was again hot shooting from the visiting team that beat the Mountaineers as LU shot 67% from behind the three-point arc to win. In the win over Ozarks, Richard Moore had a breakout game with 36 points and Kevin Deans was nearly as strong with 21 but it was Jonathan Young's 5-6 shooting from the foul line in the final minute that was the difference. Moore led SU in scoring with nearly 20 points per night over the three games and 5 boards. Deans averaged 19 points and six rebounds while Young added 9 points and 5 assists each contest.
